Very sharp pricing, I'd be on that 200/200 plan in a flash if fibre had been rolled out on my street (it's not even scheduled yet!)

I'd be on the 200/200 plan in a flash too.  Hopefully by the time the UFB installers have finished in my street Bigpipe will be connecting Wellington customers.

wow, i REALLY want UFB now!

one thing im curious about, dont the gpon networks only have enough bandwidth for everyone to have 100/50 speeds at the same time?

are we oversubscribing the networks and crossing our fingers?

or am i just confused about how it all works?

This is great for renters.

The "leave anytime" aspect is ambitious as BigPipe have to pay an ETC to the LFC is the customer leaves within 12 months.

200Mbps over wifi is indeed possible.  :)

That is truly impressive. I can see I'll have to switch to UFB once it is available in my street and then I'll have to start the spending spree on new access points and a new laptop as well!
